torinreality What was your final solution?

The new Rekluse dual actuated left hand brake kit for the small bikes works pretty well, and retains the use of the foot brake. Depends on what you intend to use it for, but I wouldnt count on that as a stand alone system to stop an LC8 which weighs twice as much as the thumper it was designed for. That left hand brake kit is off a mountain bike, it uses a bicycle brake line, its not braided stainless, so under pressure it expands and you get fade. Also Im not sure that Rekluse master cylinder could develop enough system pressure to work the rear caliper enough to lock the back wheel if needed.
